"Entrepreneurship is what runs the world"

- Zenisha, Lender

Volunteering as an Advisor with Kiva has connected me to many aspiring entrepreneurs. I have met a lot of people who are passionate about their business and exude it via conversation. The success of Kiva proves that entrepreneurship is what runs the world and that anyone can have the opportunity to bring their vision to reality. Thank you Kiva for giving underserved communities a voice and an opportunity. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it!

About the author

Kathinka K. Nakstad

Kathinka moved to San Francisco to pursue her BBA degree, with a major in marketing. Being form Norway, she time to time misses the different seasons (especially winters with snow). One of her hobbies consists of finding a part of a city and explore it for a whole day. Checking out cool boutiques, and the best places to eat. Two of her favorite places to visit are Budapest and Vienna. No wonder her dream job would be to travel the world and write about the places she visits.
